Webmail is an email program that works with a web browser. It allows you to access your @Stanford email from any computer with a web browser and an Internet connection. There is no software to download or configure.
About four months after you graduate, Stanford automatically forwards your @stanford.edu mail to your alumni email address. The university keeps this forwarding in place for two years. Stanford also forwards mail for GSB alumni to their GSB alumni email addresses for two years.
By default, appointments and emails print in 12 point type. You can choose a larger or smaller size.
